Awful choice of removing dislike count

If a YouTuber makes a video and the content is totally fake and misleading, e.g. a fake news. There are going to be some believer and there are more people know this content is misleading and press dislike. But there are larger group of people who don’t have time and energy to find if this content is appropriate or misleading, they would rely on the likes/dislikes count ratio. Now you remove dislike counts, people will be misled because they will see 1k likes and believed this content but there could be 5k dislikes.

Another example If I need to search for a tutorial video and I have 2 choices, one with 1k likes and 800 dislikes, the other one has 1k likes and 200 dislikes, this will help me a lot for choosing a right video. How can I choose the right content in the future after you removed the dislike counts.

Don’t update.

I just updated to the latest version after getting fed up with having to ignore the constant prompts to update. Now, certain searches bring up ‘Other searches related to......’ without actually bringing up results for your search. So now you can just end up in a never ending loop of related searches without actually getting what you’re looking for.

For example just yesterday I searched for a soundtrack, and played the playlist fine. Today I can’t find that playlist because of this update.

Worst ‘improvement’ ever.

Lack of Support for Tablets

(Disclaimer: This review is about the app and it’s functionality) This app has been consistently getting worse as time goes by. They keep making changes to the app when there’s completely nothing wrong in the first place. An example being the giant ‘+’ in the middle of the bottom bar that no one uses. Another example is selecting the video quality going from selecting actual resolutions and being changed to ‘high’ and ‘low’. I’ve been getting more problems and issues in the recent few weeks and updates to the app hasn’t solved them. Examples are clicking on a video in the home page and the app not showing. Another example is using the search bar and videos not loading after the search.

I will update my review if these problems get fixed however I won’t change my opinion about the app changing for no good reason.
